I haven't been diligent about keeping track and restocking the snack boxes during my sick time. I notice my 5 yo shares with everybody without even being asked which is so different than my oldest (see photo below). My daughter is eating more of her Halloween candy than before (she used to forget about it).
Before getting sick I restocked with:
Dark Choc M&Ms
Better quality fruit leather than last week
8 Pop Tarts (UGH! I KNOW!!!)
BBQ Kettle baked potato chips (I don't know if baked is that much better than fried)
This week, they all asked for pop tarts and granola bars (I did introduce organic alternatives).
It's been about a month. I'd like to continue a version of the snack boxes similar to what I did for the second week: have one of their favorite play foods mixed in with real-food snacks like a favorite nut, dried fruit, granola bar, beef jerky. I will continue to serve fruit and/or veggies after-school-snacks.

Yeah, a little possessive.
It's a gorgeous spring day today. Time to walk amongst the living. (whiff) Are those pop-tarts I smell?
